Dr. Priya Jaisinghani Discusses Diabetes (Lecture – 4, Classification of Diabetes Mellitus)

Today we have a rockstar physician with us. We will discuss diabetes with her.

Link to the tweet:

Dr. Jaisinghani’s introduction:
Dr. Priya Jaisinghani is a board certified Internal Medicine physician who completed her training at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson, NJ and is currently completing her fellowship in Endocrinology at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell, NY.  Dr. Jaisinghani received a distinction in service to the community through her work at the The Boggs Center in medical school and was inducted into the AOA Honor Society in 2019 during her residency.  She also serves on the Board of Directors of a mental health organization called SAMHIN (South Asian Mental Health Initiative and Network) Dr. Jaisinghani plans to focus her career on Diabetes and Obesity Medicine while continuing to be an advocate for minority health and mental health. 
I also had privilege of serving India remotely during the second surge of COVID19 with my work being featured in The Times of India and Medscape.

Classification of Diabetes Mellitus – Diabetes Lecture – 4
Type 1 Diabetes
Beta cell destruction, usually leading to absolute insulin deficiency
Type 2 Diabetes
Combination of insulin resistance and beta cell dysfunction
Genetic Defects of Beta Cell Function
Maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY), caused by mutations in:
Hepatocyte nuclear factor 4α gene (HNF4A)—MODY1
Glucokinase gene (GCK)—MODY2
Hepatocyte nuclear factor 1α gene (HNF1A)—MODY3
Pancreatic and duodenal homeobox 1 gene (PDX1)—MODY4
Hepatocyte nuclear factor 1β gene (HNF1B)—MODY5
Neurogenic differentiation factor 1 gene (NEUROD1)—MODY6
Maternally inherited diabetes and deafness (MIDD) due to
mitochondrial DNA mutations (3243A→G)
Defects in proinsulin conversion
Insulin gene mutations
Genetic Defects in Insulin Action
Insulin receptor mutations
Exocrine Pancreatic Defects
Chronic pancreatitis
Cystic fibrosis
Fibrocalculous pancreatopathy
Growth hormone excess (acromegaly)
Cushing syndrome
Cytomegalovirus infection
Coxsackievirus B infection
Congenital rubella
Thyroid hormone
β-Adrenergic agonists
Genetic Syndromes Associated with Diabetes
Down syndrome
Klinefelter syndrome
Turner syndrome
Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes associated with pregnancy

  1. Great! Measure blood glucose levels (which homeostasis tries to control by ever increasing insulin secretion) so that it is years later that damage is done and you finally are called diabetic when your insulin secretion ability is virtually wiped out! Beauty for pharma companies and insulin suppliers!!!

  2. Dr Been, On a cursory review of this video I did not hear Dr J discuss the underlying cause of insulin resistance, which has been shown unequivocally to be intramyocellular lipids from the diet that impair insulin receptor function and that on a very low fat (less than 15% fat by Calories) 100% whole food plant based no oil diet can be permanently reversed thus preventing and reversing Type 2 Diabetes (given that the patient has not experienced significant Beta cell burnout). It would be nice to hear her view on this topic which btw is sadly still not well recognized by the conventional medical community. Thanks!

  3. Thank you Dr Been and Dr Praia J for this series of lectures on diabetes. I will need to do some back review to catch up on the subject. This series is very educational and helpful and I appreciate the gifts you give to humanity. The disease is so prevalent and the education so valuable.

  6. There's a lot more complexity than I ever imagined in the development of diabetes especially with regard to all the different antibodies that can lead to it by diverse mechanisms. As is the case with the various auto-antibodies, there are also genetic variations that seem to produce such tiny, minute changes that can have far-reaching implications on our health. It was truly fascinating video. Dr. Priya does it again! I look forward to further shows in this series that will help me to learn about the lifestyle changes I can make to avoid diabetes and diabetes complications and optimize my metabolic health.
